As 2016 comes to an end, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be launched by the manufacturer very soon. The device has a rumored launch date of February 26th, which leaves a time frame of four to five months for the device. For features, the Korean media claims to have some more information for the device. According to the Koreaherald, Samsung’s started to place orders for more expansive components this year.
Today’s information stands in line with what has surfaced previously for the device. For starters, looks like the Galaxy S8 will also make the upgrade to dual camera next. LG, followed by Apple have both introduced the feature and Samsung’s tendency to stay in line with market features compels the Korean manufacturer to make a similar change.
